Leyburn snow

I woke up to snow this morning. No, that’s not quite right. I woke up to a 6:30 a.m. robo-call from the school district, saying that buses would be on snow routes, but school was open. No snow.

I went back to sleep, and woke up to snow.

Snow is just another photo op for a blogger, right?

I was cruising down the foot of the second Leyburn last night, 2 repeats in (16 rounds), when suddenly I realized that the pattern didn’t match the first sock at the edges of the instep. After comparing with the first sock, trying to figure out what I did the first time, I finally just looked at the directions. Duh! A bit of ripping, and all is back on track now.

In other news, I’m mentioned in Lime & Violet this morning. There’s a picture of the twisted cast on from my Leyburn, and a link. Thanks for the shout-out, Sam!

Here’s a snowy cuff.

  1. How long did it take for the sock to dry so you could start knitting on it again? LOL

    Our snow starts at midnight

  2. I had finished a snowflake star yesterday, hadn’t taken a pic of it yet, so of course was out there this morning taking a pic of it in the snow! Yours has more snow than when I took my pic. Still need to post those.

    Cool about the Lime & Violet!

  3. The last person I know who was featured on Lime and Violet has so many visitors, her blog crashed! And she was famous. Congratulations!

  4. What in the world is up with this whole snow in Portland thing It’s crazy!

  5. Congrats on the Lime & Violet feature! That’s awesome. 🙂

  6. I just saw your mention in L&V before I came here! Cool! Congrats! 🙂

    Our snow started today around 6:00, just as I was headed to the gym. Verdict’s still out as to whether we’re going to get slammed or just get a little. It was freezing rain a bit ago, so either way, it isn’t going to be pretty come morning! And I have a 9 a.m. dr. appointment tomorrow…ha! Wanna take bets on whether I call first thing to reschedule??

  7. I got some yarn wound up. I’m making socks for eli. And if I can, some for Shannon’s babe on the way. I’ll bring it thursday

  8. Very sexy snowy close-ups on that Leyburn! It looks quite good in the snow.

  9. Thanks for pointing out the cast on! Great pictures!

    We got snow too, but I was too lazy to haul the wips out for snow shots.

  10. ha! Did your snow melt by noon? Congrats on the shout out! ^_^ Beautiful leyburns. I plan to study my notecards and get mine finished by the weekend so I can blog about more than hats, LOL.

  11. Pretty pretty pretty!!!

    What’s a snow route? Does that mean they pick up/drop off the kids at a different location?

  12. What a pretty knit! I love the colors 🙂 I’ve never seen it snow before, I’ve been in snow- but I have never seen snow fall. I hope one day to experience it and I hope it is as magical as everyone says!
